Kolkata: All-India Forward Bloc, the party founded by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, on Thursday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi apologise to the nation as the Union home ministry has “misled” the country by saying that the nationalist leader had died in an air crash in 1945. It also demanded withdrawal of the letter by the MHA in reply to the RTI application filed under the Right To Information Act seeking to know about the whereabouts of Netaji post August 18, 1945.

“We will write to the prime minister and demand his apology as the Union home ministry has deliberately tried to mislead the nation by spreading lies about Netaji’s death. It is a shame,” AIFB general secretary Debabrata Biswas said.

He referred to the report of Justice M.K. Mukherjee Commission, which claimed that he had not died in the plane crash at Taihoku in modern day Taiwan on the stated day.
